What Ruby's Sports and Entertainment Venue Clients say about her training programs:



Aramark, Concession Provider at General Motors Place - Home of the Vancouver Canucks
"The NHL lockout in 2004/2005 was a very difficult time for NHL venues and in turn caused a high rate of employee turnover. In preparation for the return of NHL Hockey to General Motors Place, ARAMARK was happy to have Ruby conduct a Guest Relations Training Seminar for all of the employees involved in the service of Food and Beverage. This included people from 10 days to 10 years experience. Ruby's ability to customize her program and to use specific examples from General Motors Place was essential in engaging our employees with the training."

"Ruby's ability to bring guest experience values to our employees in a fun and informative setting has allowed us to increase our level of service to over 18,000 ticket holders every game, thus making General Motors Place one of North America's Premier Sporting facilities."

Mark Vaillant, General Manager, ARAMARK - General Motors Place, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Everyone at the building that I have talked to thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and I know the ones who missed it are now extremely anxious to hear you, hopefully sometime in the near future."
